The best wine from the Friuli region!
Wine from Friuli
Friuli (Friulian Friuli, Italian Friuli, Slovenian Furlanija) is a region in northeastern Italy around the town of Udine, located between Venice, the Alps, Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea. Nowadays, this region is the largest part of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. The region includes the provinces of Udine and Pordenone, next to parts of the province of Gorizia.
The name Friuli comes from the Latin Forum Julii, which means Forum of Julius. This is a remnant of Roman times.
The typical grape for wine from Friuli is the Friulano. This white grape is the most used grape in this region. Wines can also be made from the ribolla gialla and malvasia grape. Of course, the typical French grapes are also present, and these also prove to be great. (Just think of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot, ...)
Red wines are made from grape varieties like refosco, pignolo, tazzelenghe and schiopettino, mixed with cabernet sauvignon, merlot or cabernet franc.
Dessert wines are made from picolit and verduzzo.
